Strawberry Creek Inn Bed and Breakfast, The Bed with no Breakfast http://www.strawberrycreekinn.com/ My husband and I took a road-trip recently to the beautiful Idyllwild, CA for a peaceful stay in a bed and breakfast, on our way from Sedona, AZ to Palm Springs, CA. We decided to spend the night in Idyllwild due to raves of the artsy little town... More

Very comfortable, well-managed and spacious public areas. The breakfasts are fantastic and they even made me gluten-free options which were great. They guys who run it are very kind and attentive - really liked them a lot. Sitting in the lobby reading is very pleasant.

I bought an Amazon local voucher for my wife and i to spend our anniversary in Idylwild. Strawberry creek in is a really peaceful rustic bed and breakfest. We stayed in the San Jacento room. Nice small room, tiny shower/bathroom. The breakfest they serve is really good, all home made. I think this place is a fun, quirky spot in... More

We visited Idyllwild for the first time recently and stayed at Strawberry Inn on an Amazon Local coupon. We were very happy with the old house that has been turned into a lovely inn. It is amply decorated in an eclectic country style and the common room has many cozy places to sit with books and games available. There is... More

I read the reviews before I purchased a weekend here but I thought the people were just over reacting and maybe "needy". Not so, I was wrong they were right!! Wow, if you're going to run a B&B at least be somewhat nice and available!! I was excited the Maggie room was available so I purchased 2 nights. This is... More

Room was worn out yet clean. The common area interior was cluttered yet clean. The exterior grounds were lacking yet clean. The breakfast was tasty yet small portioned. No surprise I will search a better value, accommodations.

Idyllwild has always been rustic in its hotel accommodation in keeping with the outdoorsy character of the town---mostly little pine cabins and lodges made from wood. Strawberry Inn is a redwood shingled lodge with varied size guest rooms, nice trees, decks, a hammock, chickens in a classy coop, rustic benches and chairs, plenty of birds in the trees, and a...

We have been to Idyllwild several time and tried a new spot, Strawberry Creek Inn. I emailed Rodney several time and appreciated his response each time. We stayed in the Evergreen Room, nice and comfortable. You definitely felt like being in the mountains. Both breakfasts were very good. The lodge is old and could use some cleaning up. The innkeepers... More

Since May 2013, when I come to Idyllwild, a small mountain town located on San Jacinto Mountains of California, I stay in this unique, special, small B&B, run by the lovely owners, Ian&Rodney. It may be because it looks like one of the houses in my childhood fairytale stories, I love to stay here. If you google it you will... More

My husband and I came for the weekend and enjoyed the chance to get away together. The Inn was comfortable and cozy, located on the edge of the small artsy town of Idyllwild. We liked the hammocks, the chicken coop on the property, and the path along the stream that led into town. The main house is open 24/7 and... More
